ICE CALL – brought to you by Old Mutual – the free app that helps you In Case of Emergency (ICE).
South Africa only – the app is currently only configured for use within South Africa.
At the touch of a button ICE CALL can geo-locate you using GPS, give you your exact location and give you the contact details of all the closest relevant emergency services.
So the app will provide not only the national and metropolitan emergency numbers, but also the nearest:
NSRI Sea Rescue
*If available to you
In addition, you can save specific emergency numbers, such as your doctor, vet etc.
The app also allows users to record the details (via text, voice-clip and photograph) of an incident. An incident can be directly linked to an actual call (automatically capturing the date and time of that call) or simply be opened to record an incident on its own. This section features various fields to help guide the user in terms of what should be recorded (e.g. in the case of an car accident, other vehicle and driver details etc. It also allows photographs and voice clips to be recorded which will be irrevocably linked to that event. Everything is date and time stamped and once captured, details, voice clips and photographs can only be added to but not edited.
